Course Description

***Last update November 2015***, it includes TRUE CV AND COVER LETTER SAMPLES for the UNITED NATIONS and I also added a Bonus Section with my true sample CV and Cover Letters to stand out of the 10,000+ online applicants to the WORLD BANK Analyst Program.

This course intends to help students, future students or even young professionals to build their career path so that they maximize their chances of getting an internship at the United Nations, and hopefully later to any of their dream company or organization. During the course, we are going to get through what a young student needs and does not need to achieve his/her goal of getting an internship at the United Nations. You are going to get plenty of ideas on what you could do to boost your CV.

Further than that, you will have access to 2 sample CVs (Bachelor and Master level) and 3 sample Cover Letters (1 Bachelor level, 2 master level for different positions). These are authentic application documents that I have used in the past and thanks to which I got contacted back for 6 out of 7 U.N. internship positions to which I had applied.

The course is meant to motivate you, and to show you that you too can get an internship at the United Nations in order to boost your future career.

You will also have a quick overview of the different internship possibilities at the U.N. and of the respective eligibility criteria, as well as of the required document formats for your CV and Cover letter.

Instructor Biography

Anja Altberger, Blogger, MBA, Corporate Finance, Social Entrepreneurship

Hey there, my name is Anja and in the past I could have been described as a young high-achiever building a perfect professional career. A little while ago, I jumped out of the moving train (i.e. my perfectly planned career, basically) to start getting my head into blogging and entrepreneurship.

My background: I have several years of experience in corporate finance advisory, during which I worked on high level Mergers & Acquisitions, Legal suits and Restructuring assignments, and had my first experiences in teaching, coaching and presenting.

I hold an MBA from a top-tier French Business School, with a specialization in Social Entrepreneurship and Corporate Finance. During my studies, I gathered two years of professional experience working as: (i) an intern at the United Nations; (ii) an intern at the Deutsche Bank, and as (iii) a volunteer project manager in a Latin American Foundation.

Just for fun: I like to take challenges. For instance, I have run a full marathon (4:09) and an olympic triathlon (with an old city bike and only three weeks training). I speak five languages fluently and two on an intermediate level (constantly learning a new language on the side). My problem is that I've always been passionate about learning all sorts of new things. I am now shaping my own professional life to fit my needs and, hopefully, to spread the virus.
